  1. 1.<br />Trip To Kerala<br />
  2. 2. Kumarakom<br />When nature is all you need to recuperate, Kumarakom is undoubtedly the most invigorating, fascinating paradise in Kerala, God's own country. The slender coconut palms standing here, there and everywhere, its never ending paddy fields, meandering lagoons and backwaters, mangroves nesting birds of a hundred varieties can peacefully calm and invigorate your mind with renewed inspiration for your vocation and life. That is the pristine beauty of Kumarakom. <br />
  3. 3. Kumarakom the charming emerald peninsula jutting into the ever-effervescent Vembanad Lake takes you into the heart of the scenic lake where you'll come across plenty of traditional country crafts, boats and canoes. The fresh water of the lake runs into the mainland making a labyrinth of lagoons, brooks, canals and waterways. The backwater houses a variety of species of both fauna and flora. They are rich with marine life namely the exclusive 'KumarakomKarimeen' (pearl spotted fish), Konju (tiger prawns), Njandu (crabs), Chemeen (prawns) and many more. <br />
  4. 4. As the monsoon winds bring rain to the shores of Vembanad Lake, the Kumarakom is transformed into a rich fertile land. The streams, lagoons, brooks break their banks and provide nourishment to springs and shrubs that sprout from every available space. <br />Water birds, migratory birds, mangrove shores and the renowned bird sanctuary form their niche. The resorts nearby offer comfortable accommodation and exclusive leisure options like an Ayurvedic massage, yoga, meditation, boating, fishing and swimming. The adventurous could indulge in water sports such as windsailing and waterskiing. You could even take a canoe out into the quite lakes and armed with a fishing rod, catch your own supper. Make sure you do not miss out on Karimeen and fresh toddy, the favourite fresh water food and the local wine. <br />
  5. 5. The local spring season emerges from August and coincides with the harvest festival of Onam, blooms the tourist and the local people. And so, ..Come & Ride -through the backwater country that offers a glance of the rustic Kumarakom life. ..Come & Watch - the swaying paddy fields with the herds of ducks and other water birds. <br />
  6. 6. ..Come & Roam -the lofty coconut palms standing upright above the evergreen foliages of the mangroves and other wetland vegetation, ..Come & sail -on the canoes, houseboat, country boats silently through the zigzagging waterways ..Come & listen the occasional call of the migratory bird<br />
  7. 7. Climate: Kumarakom enjoys a well-balanced tropical climate. The lowest and highest temperatures recorded are 20.00 C and 37.80 C. There is always a cool, fresh breeze, which makes even the warmest weather readily agreeable. The South West monsoon is from early June to early August. However, slight drizzles persist till early November. Average rainfall is 1100 mm per year. The peak tourist season is from November to March.<br />
  8. 8. Aruvikkuzhi Waterfalls<br />18 km out of Kottayam town and 2 km down a mud lane from the picturesque Kumarakom will bring you to a truly breathtaking picnic spot  the Aruvikkuzhi Waterfall. <br />Numerous streams gurgle softly as they make their way through a verdant landscape full of rubber plantations till they drop precipitously down a height of 100ft. from the mountains. The waterfall is a beautiful sight to behold especially after the Indian monsoon season when the landscape is painted with a fresh coat of green and the thundering roar of the waterfalls makes conversation impossible<br />
  9. 9. Kottayam<br />Kottayam is an ancient town famous for its churches, especially the 700 years-old churches, the Cheriapalli ('small church') with exceptionally lovely paintings over the altar and the Valiapalli('Big Church') perched on a picturesque hillock over a small cluster of houses. In the St.Mary's Church Kuravilangad built in 355 AD there is an old bell which bears a hitherto undeciphered inscription. The mortal remains of the blessed Alphonsa and the Blessed Father Chavara are entombed at the St.Mary's Church at Bharananganam and the St.Joseph's Monastery Church at Mannanam respectively.<br />
  10. 10. Erumely<br />This is an important pilgrim centre for the Hindus and Muslims. SreeDharmasastha Temple here is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Ayyappa. Pilgrims going to Sabarimala alight here. <br />
  11. 11. Aranmula<br />50km from Kottayam, Aranmula is the site of the splendid Onam festival boat races, usually in early September. These races unlike the more sporting Nehru Trophy race at Alappuzha in August are essentially religious, based on a temple festival. Caparisoned elephants with beaded umbrellas, processions of decorated floats, and highly ornate boats make this a lovely event to witness. Aranmula is also the centre of bell metal mirror crafts. <br />
